One of my colleagues went to work in Denmark. When she returned, she gave me a bottle of shampoo. The smells of it is very fragrant. I tried to use it. My hair became smoother after used. However, my head began to itch and dandruff. After that, I never use it anymore, I just use it to wash your hands! The cosmetics are manufactured to suit each object in different localities. Be careful when using cosmetics or cosmetics donated from abroad.

Whenever we have to use a product for the first time, let us be cautious. Try to test it by using a small amount for the first time. See if there is any negative reaction after you have used it. If there are, then do not use it anymore. People have different reactions to cosmetics. So, everyone be cautious when using them for the first time.

That's the way how i tested any new cosmetics on my skin. I will only continue using it only when i saw my skin don't have any negative reaction.

The ingredients can be harsh for some people so you are right that not all shampoos can suit everyone. I am glad you found use of it some other way though. I will certainly keep this in mind as I have sensitive skin and am prone to reactions from certain ingredients too.

Hi, there! You're right.. Everyone must be careful in using different products. Dandruff is so awful. It's great that you didn't have hair fall or made your hair dry. :D I advise you to discontinue using it even if it's has a pleasing smell. :D

I think every products works differently on everybody and since it's from Denmark you're definitely not used to any of the products there. International products are produced differently and the country's regulations are not the same. You might also be allergic to one of the ingredients, if so, you shouldn't be using it to wash your hands.

You muse be allergic to one of its ingredients. But I am not sure if dandruff can also be an allergic reaction. Somehow, one of it ingredients might be too strong for your scalp that it got so dry and got dandruff. I also had an allergic reaction to one cosmetic cream given to me. It was okay and after a week there I got this red patches on my face and it was itchy. It was terrible I got so scared that it might leave dark scars on my face. I am glad it is over now.

I think even if you buy some cosmetics near you, it might not suit you! It doesn't mean that the cosmetic didn't suit you just coz it was made in a different place. Many Korean cosmetics are sold in different parts of the world and people say it suits them perfectly while other say it doesn't. I have been using cosmetics my friend has been sending me from England for the past year and it works perfectly on me and nor am I allergic or anything to it :)

I try to stick with products that I have been using for a very long time with no problems. I'm sorry you got a bad product for your hair.

I ever got allergic reaction once when i bought a new cosmetics and use it on my face. When i went outdoor, i felt the burning sensation on my face. When i am at home, i cleansed my face and saw quite a lot of red spots on my face. After i had stopped using it for nearly a month, i saw the red spots gradually gone from my face. It is better to test a little bit of the new cosmetics on your skin for allergic reaction. If you don't have any kind of reaction, then you can continue using it. It is very important to be very careful with any new cosmetics before you are using them for the first time.

Good point. I never would have thought of that in the first place until it happened like it did to you. That must have been such a dissapointment when you found out it was not going to work; I mean it smelled good and all. It would irratate me. Thanks for the info.
